Across most Christian cultures, as Easter draws near, there's a shared notion that the springtime celebration demands some mixture of flour, yeast, and, most definitely, eggs. The symbolism of these breads is rich, as are their flavors, which run the gamut from sweet to savory. Any of these baked goods can enliven the Easter table. Hot cross buns are widely associated with Easter in the British Isles, Australia, New Zealand, and beyond, and they start appearing around Ash Wednesday.

EASTER is a day for color, and the faithful brought it out for everyone to see. I visited churches and brunches to capture the pageantry of kids in colorful dresses, ladies with embellished hats, and gentlemen looking dapper. n Contact Reuben Harley at BIGRUBE@streetgazing.com , follow him on twitter @BigRubeHarley or read his blog at streetgazing.com .

The city of Philadelphia isn't staging its traditional Easter Sunday parade on Rittenhouse Square, but that doesn't mean you'll be all dressed up with nowhere to go on April 19. Rather, you can head to South Street for that neighborhood's Easter promenade, for which the city now has joined the sponsorship team, or to Ocean City, which is hosting a weekend of Easter activities. On South Street, dress in your best or go eccentric. The promenade will form at the 800 block at noon, head east to Front Street, make an about-face and return to Second and South, where judges will select the finalists.

What's up Sunday? A basketful, that's what. First up, of course, is Easter, a day when people get decked out in their finest threads, bonnets and bootees. A day for parades, promenades and pageants. It's also a day when people flock to church services in higher numbers than usual. This year, they will be doing all of that in an atmosphere of gloom. Accu- Weather said that, after a cloudy day tomorrow possibly with rain, Easter Sunday will be cloudy with even more rain.

There is one big prohibition and a half dozen permissions when it comes to preaching to the Easter Only Crowd. The prohibition is obvious: Make no reference whatsoever to the obvious fact that you haven't seen much of this particular crowd lately. That would be like yelling, "It's about time" at a teenager who has just cleaned up his room. Reward the positive behavior; do not punish the past. Punishment works only when we catch people in the act: That means we can call them some Sundays at 10 a.m. and get somewhere with negative remarks.

The Rosenbach Museum and Library is always on the alert for a good literary anniversary - or an anniversary that can be celebrated through literature. The former is coming up June 16 - Bloomsday, the Rosenbach's annual celebration of James Joyce's novel Ulysses , which takes place on that date in 1904. The Rosenbach event has grown over the last 20-plus years to include readings, concerts, and even a Bloomsday 101 trivia quiz at Fergie's Pub. This year marks the centenary of the Irish Easter Rising, and the Rosenbach will host a literary celebration to mark that occasion Thursday evening, when contemporary Irish writers will take the stage of the Montgomery Auditorium at the Free Library of Philadelphia.

In the late morning sunshine, John Kline held up a poster-size photograph of his great-uncle, an Irish immigrant named Dominic McEmey. "He escaped Ireland and came here to Philadelphia in 1920," Kline said, adding that McEmey had been a runner between Irish rebels in the Easter Rising against the British on April 24, 1916 - 100 years ago to the day. "As a teenager, he had to leave for America," Kline recalled, for fear of reprisal by the British...

There were Mad Hatter-inspired top hats, handmade green-and-orange porkpies and bunny-bedecked sun caps. But the best bonnet of all was the one worn by Joules Santos, according to the judges at this year's Easter Promenade on South Street. The 13-year-old Allentown girl wore a straw hat sprouting snapdragons and carnations amid spinning pinwheels, with strings of daisies hanging from its brim. "You look for originality," said City Councilman Mark Squilla, who donned a pair of yellow rabbit ears to join the panel of judges at Sunday's event in his district.

Robert J. Hutchinson is the author of "Searching for Jesus: New Discoveries in the Quest for Jesus of Nazareth - And How They Confirm the Gospel Accounts" (Thomas Nelson) Millions of people will flock to their churches this Sunday and then enjoy Easter egg hunts, elaborate brunches, and family celebrations. The question is: Why? After all, Easter is the celebration of one of the most absurd claims in history: that Jesus of Nazareth was seen alive again after dying on a Roman cross.

A few days ago, Chris Smith, 65, of Mount Ephraim got an urgent text from her niece, Adriana DiEva, 8, of Cherry Hill. There was an egg drop Saturday morning, and Adriana had to be there. "I said, 'Do you mean an egg hunt?' I never heard of an egg drop," Smith said. "Egg drop, to me, is soup - not eggs coming out of the sky. " But that's what was in store Saturday, when they arrived at Joyce Kilmer Elementary School in Cherry Hill to the buzz of surveillance drones overhead and the sight of another drone, loaded with pastel eggs, parked in wait.
